In this 1927 session, Hoagy Carmichael recorded the first version of his famous song “Stardust“. The song went on from these humble beginnings to be one of the most popular songs of the Twentieth Century. Legend has it that Gennett almost destroyed the record because they thought it wasn’t good enough. Hoagy is accompanied by Emil Seidel and his Orchestra and the Dorsey brothers on this session.
Champion 15420-B was released under the pseudonym of Malcom Webb and his Gang.
